Tradies' touching act for Perth mum after husband's sudden death on Bali holiday

A Perth mum who lost her husband suddenly while on holiday in Bali has been left overwhelmed by the generosity of a group of local tradies.

Ebony Taylor’s partner Chris, the father of her two young boys, died suddenly on the Indonesian island in December last year.

The cause of Mr Taylor’s death is still unknown and his wife is struggling to return the lives of her young family to a level of normality.

"I want to keep his memory alive for them because he was a wonderful dad and it's just so sad they won't get to see how much of a wonderful dad or even remember him,” Ms Taylor told Nine News.

The couple were planning on renovating their home at the time of Mr Taylor’s death, with the qualified carpenter looking to take the work on himself.

Yet with Ms Taylor now a single mum, plans for their dream home came to an abrupt halt.

That was until Tim Mathews from Modus Property was shown the plans.

According to Nine News, he and his company not only took it upon themselves to complete the renovations, they did it all for free.

After ripping down a wall and putting in a brand new kitchen and bathroom, Ms Taylor estimates the cost of the renovations at about $40,000.

Mr Mathews told Nine News the mother’s story resonated with his company as many young fathers work in their industry.

A forever-grateful Ms Taylor has since thanked the “incredibly generous” team for their selfless act.

"This is what we planned on doing and the fact that it got to happen when I thought that dream was dashed with all the other dreams that got dashed is just phenomenal, he'd be so happy," Mrs Taylor said.

In December, a GoFundMe page was set up to help support the Taylor family following Mr Taylor’s death.
